Something Old Is New Again
When I opened up the file to update it, I saw why I haven't been selling the tutorial for the Seven Sisters Pendant in quite a while. This was one of my earliest bead weaving designs, and I wrote the tutorial before I figured out how to write a tutorial very well. The only thing that was salvageable was the illustrations and some of the photos. I rewrote pretty much all of the text and shot a whole new sequence of step photos. Plus, I added lots of tips so that your pendant will turn out pretty, and increased the gallery with new photos of beadwork.

y section. Anyway, here's a link to the new, and much improved version of the tutorial.

Updating Old Beading Tutorials with New Lower Prices

For the last couple of weeks, I have been updating old tutorials and moving them off of the Bead Infinitum website and into my Etsy shop. With the transition, most of the patterns are getting larger gallery sections, and significantly, the prices will drop. Because these tutorials are my earlier work, the designs don't use any of the fancy new bead shapes. Pretty much everything can be made with regular seed beads and round beads, with the occasional finding (jump rings, clasp) or rivoli. No two-hole beads! So you can work from your stash.

First is the Wisdom Mandala Pendant, one of my all-time favorites to make because you can use so many different colors, and it's super detailed. Plus it has two different sides so if you mess up one, you can call it the back.
Starburst Galaxy: Make yourself a constellation of stars! Necklaces, earrings and bracelets!
Ionic Polyhedra Beaded Beads
Detailed instructions for 3 polyhedra, plus photos and information on many more! 

Borromean Link
includes three different link shapes.
Lotus Drops Necklace and Earrings
Rivoli Urchin Necklaces and Pendant

In the process of updating and moving old tutorials into my Etsy, I'm combining some of them together into collections based on a theme.

This collection is on flat angle weaves with stars. It contains two complete tutorials, plus the step illustrations for a third star weave, and two pages of extra bonus material including random photos and illustrations I found buried deep inside the folders of my computer.

Cluster Bead Tutorial Collection:
Cube Cluster, Octahedral Cluster, Star Cluster, and Sea Star
Infinity Beaded Bead Collection:
91 colorful pages including 4 complete patterns and extra bonus material never before released. Make them all with just seed beads!
There's still more to come.  Thanks for looking!
